I have 400 fps consistently and it just keeps stuttering randomly and annoyingly during gunfights. MY PC SPECS: i9-9900K, 16GB RAM, GIGABYTE GAMING OC GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti - 11GB (VR-Ready).

thats definitely a waste of money and with PC i bought im using it for studies and game programming.
2020-03-02 20:25
it doesnt take a 2000 euro pc to program or to use chrome lmao

its more than 2000 euro
2020-03-02 20:46
Well then why all software developers have 2.5k$ MacBooks, I would rather have a good pc I can use for 3d modelling, programming and of course gaming and have this pc for years
2020-03-02 20:50
true i guess lol. spending 2.5k on a macbook is fucking stupid though

the macbook point is dogshit though, basic bitches have 2.5k macbooks but they only use them to google "makeup tutorial james charles"
2020-03-02 23:46
his point: it doesnt take a 2000 euro pc to program or to use chrome lmao my point: programmers/software developers get macbook for their work.

Depends what software, and personal preference also plays a huge role. For example, if you want to make macOS/iOS software, you have no choice but to get a MacBook (or iMac), because closed system bullshit. For android development, you can use WIndows, macOS or Linux, so it's a personal preference. Some game studios/engines only support one system, so it can restrict your choice of a machine quite a bit. TLDR - usecase matters, not all programming/development is the same

>likes music >not immediately recognizing a snippet from a song from a no-name author from 1426 That's about the same logic you used. Knowing programming and knowing how to optimize/fix game setting have almost nothing in common
2020-04-02 11:32
knowing how to change settings and configs for programs so they actually work is like one of the hardest things about programming lol if it was just typing some code into IDE then everyone could do it. you have to actually get it to run with all the libraries linked and virtual environments and apis and communications with servers. some tools i work with have a program stack of like 6-7 different programs that all have to talk with each other. also optimizing performance of applications is a whole job by itself.

Okay, bad wording from me I suppose, I agree with your post 100%, What I meant is that knowing how to code, or even optimize performance and all that, doesn't necessarily help you with fixing someone else's product, expecially withou access to the source code. Fact is Valve's doing a bad job at optimizing their game and OP's own programming ang game development knowledge would only be able to help him up to a point, as in it could allow him to know what different settings/options mean and what impact on the performance they can have, but that's still pretty inconsistent between games and depends on the game engine in question. My point in the previous point was basically that programming is a pretty broad term and fiddling around with game settings from a user's POV doesn't require programming knowledge, even though it can help at times.
2020-04-02 13:54
well i am pretty sure that if i wasnt a programmer i wouldnt be able to set this game up properly and i could only do it because its literally my job to know how to do things like this. tinkering with settings until it works just right. i guess you could say that is more a 'tweaker' skill than a 'programmer' skill but these 2 groups have a lot of overlap. definitely valve are bad at making it accessible for people. it took me literally 1000 hours of playing just to find the correct sound settings for this game for my 5.1 surround headset. in other games like cod or battlefield the speaker positions are perfect when you start the game and select 5.1 surround in options.

yes i use it every day at work
2020-04-02 15:38
I have a 3000 $ set up bought last yr and I stuttered twice in the only game I played since the update
2020-04-02 11:42
it can start happening to anyone randomly every time valve update the game, doesnt matter how good your pc is.

few questions whats your pc's power setting on what are your launch options? set ram to xmp in bios if not already and are your drivers up-to-date, and if they are, were they stuttering before they were updated?
2020-03-02 20:45
pc is set to balanced switched to high right now. -novid -freq 240 -tickrate 128 -console havent done bios thing drivers updated it now
2020-03-02 20:47 What to choose? 1 or 2 in XMP
2020-03-02 20:51
Twistzz | 
North America peyjeh 
the power thing is what caused it, try playing cs the other two were just out of curiosity, moreso since csgo runs on so little pc resources, lower power consuption settings allow you to get high fps while the frames outputted not being as high of quality as extreme and or high performance ones
2020-03-02 21:32
Lithuania LuckyBitch 
Can you rephrase a little, not sure I understand why would lower power consumption profile should get you higher fps than high performance (high power utilizing) one?
2020-03-03 11:40
up to date video drivers are literally the worst thing you can do on nvidia gpu, you need driver 373 or older
2020-04-02 13:21

same, playing the game at 300 fps locked but sometimes it freezes like wtf, fix volvo >:(
2020-03-02 20:26
ye same issue
2020-03-02 20:27
do you have cl_forcepreload on 1? it causes huge stutter.
2020-04-02 13:21
It's fixed now
2020-04-02 17:39
with cl_forcepreload 0 or other solution? always good to write solution for when other ppl look at this thread.
2020-04-02 17:46
after this recent update i've had no more stutters, cl_forcepreload was always at 0, i used to have it at 1 before but I didn't really see any notable changes so i changed it
2020-04-02 18:33
Yep recent update fixed it
2020-04-02 19:06
Same issues man. 2080 Super 8700k 32gb 3000 ram. Random stutters that I have spent months trying to fix. My next step is replacing the 8700k with a 9900k to see if it's the cpu. Have you tried running memtest to see if its your ram? And this should be obvious but have you checked your temps? I know that with gigabyte boards you should definitely check your bios as they have a ton of options that throttle your cpu voltage. Also make sure that xmp is turned on in your bios so that your ram can run at it's max speed. It was automatically turned off on my gigabyte board. Didn't fix it for me but I know that it has for others.
2020-03-02 20:31
Russia accn 
Do you really want to change i7 8700k to i9 9900k for csgo? The problem is in the engine which is already 15 years old, built on directx9, and cannot use more than 4 threads. Even if you put a 32-core Threadripper, the engine will not be able to use the resource provided to it.
2020-04-02 11:57
hes a retarded consoomer, let him waste his money
2020-04-02 12:06
No not for csgo. I have stuttering across every game that I play. I am testing parts to try and isolate the problem. I have spent months trying to figure out just what it is. I am going to install it see if it is the problem and if it isn't I am going to return it. I have been slowly testing every part in my computer. Ram gpu psu ect.
2020-04-02 17:54
i7 8700k just can't be the cause of stutters, although this is not the most powerful cpu to date, there are no games that can even utilize it 70%. It can be your poorly tuned RAM. Just check it with aida64 cache and memory benchmark and pay attention to the latency, it should be <50ns.
2020-04-02 17:56
Poorly tuned ram? I was planning on testing my ram as well.
2020-04-03 01:04
Latency is 58.3
2020-04-03 01:08
Do you use xmp profile?
2020-04-03 09:23
2020-04-03 15:58
And that's the weirdest part. I have checked everything that I can think of. Gpu, psu, I made sure that xmp was on, I bought new cords, and downloaded a standby list cleaner. All to no effect. The cpu was the last thing. I may test different ram afterwards, but if neither works my only option will be to take it to a shop and pray that they have better luck. Maybe it's a defective motherboard, but I have no idea how to test that.
2020-04-03 22:00
Last thing you should to try to manually configure memory, timings and sub-timings. Btw what windows power plan do you use?
2020-04-04 02:03
High performance. I'm telling you I've tried everything that I could think of or find. I'll check out the timings.

For me, it helped reinstalling windows, to be honest. My suspicion it had to do with audio & video driver incompatibility, but did not get enough proof so just opted to reinstall windows (full format C) altogether.

did you turn it off?

Brazil hava 
try using cl_forcepreload 1 yes i know theres a comment from a valve developer that said this command could cause suttering so it makes no sense to use it but its what solved the problem for me. I thought "my game is already randomly freezing so surely it cant get worse" and tried to use this command and... it got better if it doesnt help, dont forget to change it back to 0 to avoid problems
2020-03-02 20:38
HOW AND WHY, everyone I saw uses 0 and I myself used 1 not till recently, but the drops and stutters are something that really bothers me
2020-03-03 07:46

idk either men, i just tried it out and it worked
2020-03-03 14:25
same for me. my spray feels awful because as soon as i shoot the first bullets it microstutters. it happened with the latest update. ill just wait, maybe it ges fixed by its own.

2020-03-03 07:53
You can do 4 simple things to make CSGO buttersmooth for nvidia users: 1) Disable shader cache (for csgo.exe) in nvidia options. 2) Activate MSI mode (, download program, open as admin, tick MSI mode on your GPU and restart PC. Also set priority to high. Enjoy. 3) Install 'Intelligent standby list cleaner' (, put on autostart with PC minimized, set wanted timer resolution to 0.5, press start. 4) Install Process Lasso ( and open CSGO, Alt+Tab to windows, right click csgo.exe, set CPU affinity - always - disable CORE 0. Set priority class - always - high. Set Bitsum Highest Performance power plan. Aces! Enjoy buttersmooth CSGO without any microstuttering or audio-picture-lag<3
2020-03-03 18:02
thanks, i will try it later. I think lots of people have this right now after recent updates in CSGO
2020-03-04 18:56
Btw you can also try this: In Windows 10, go to settings exploit protection.. if its in your language then find out what its called. Then when you enter the settings press "Program settings" and "Add program to customize." Then you add csgo.exe. When you have added csgo.exe you press the little arrow down and press edit. Once that windows open your press "Override system settings" on everything and turn everything OFF. This will turn off all "cpu security fixes" from Windows 10. Let me know if anything helped ok?
2020-03-05 18:59
nice one never seen this anywehere
2020-03-16 20:26
Totally helps with all my games, turn everyrhing off and its stutter free. Finally found _the_ fix!
2020-03-30 17:50
1. shader cache on is supposed to reduce cpu usage, since csgo is cpu bottlenecked game, turning it off should reduce performance instead of improve it. 2. never heard of MSI mode can you tell me more about this? 3. disable first cpu core only helps if you run a shit OS like windows 10 with 10.000 background processes using CPU cycles while you are playing a game. the solution for this is not to tell your game not to use core 0. the solution is to disable all these background services or remove windows 10 from your system. in general if you have windows 10 and csgo stutters, first step to fix is remove windows 10 and get win7 or linux.

It’s most likely because of the huge influx of cosmetics I think in this last update csgo now preloads cosmetic models and stuff so it might fix
2020-03-05 19:04
yes it is, a lot of people have it now
2020-03-05 20:41 try downloading this set "The list size is at least" to 500mb Free memory is lower than (total ram - 4gb) tick the 2 boxes at the bottom set polling rate to 500 and click start
2020-03-05 19:05
I deleted csgo and installed it on a another harddisk and the problems were gone.
2020-03-05 19:09
its fine, everyone have this problem, elige tweeted out recently as well.
2020-03-05 19:36
Europe twitchy_ 
Latest update did this mess. In theory new update is fixing this by making the textures to load on ram or something instead than accesing from hard disk on demand. I saw it on don haci twitter, but not sure if the update is done by now or they are waiting for something more.

Not talking about microstutters, talking about framerate
2020-03-06 20:38
microstutter influences your framerate, if your frametimes are worse because of stutter then your fps will also be lower

prolly your monitor. thats why you must use a TN panel for csgo. its a competitive game you dont need ips monitor it performs shit but it has good colour quality. better go for TN panel it has better performance quality.
2020-03-16 08:31
Nah it's everyone games stuttering when starting up the game and playing in the start, it's the new update thing. Even csgo official Twitter acknowledged the stuttering fact

2020-03-16 20:21
the stutters can't be fixed I tried everything from 192 - 276 fps to 98 - 182 fps pray gaben removes this default high shader even tho it's still there when it's low
